A third location for Sweet Martha's Cookie Jar is already pinned on the map at Sweet Martha's.com.

Martha Rossini Olson, one of four co-owners, told the Business Journal State Fair officials asked them to open a third location (to spread out the crowds that swamp the existing two) and to put it on the North End of the fairgrounds, where a makeover is planned over the next couple of years.

And if you want to move crowds, opening a Sweet Martha's stand is a good way to do it.

When the vendor marked its 30th anniversary a couple years back, a profile in the Business Journal said Sweet Martha's sells about one million cookies per day during the fair.

KARE 11 reports the fair's numbers from 2014 show Sweet Martha's grossed $2.9 million, which more than doubled the total of any other vendor.
